George W. Bush got it right on Muslim Americans here:
“I also want to speak tonight directly to Muslims throughout the world.
We respect your faith. It’s practiced freely by many millions of Americans and by millions more in countries that America counts as friends. Its teachings are good and peaceful, and those who commit evil in the name of Allah blaspheme the name of Allah.
The terrorists are traitors to their own faith, trying, in effect, to hijack Islam itself.
The enemy of America is not our many Muslim friends.
It is not our many Arab friends.
Our enemy is a radical network of terrorists and every government that supports them.”
~ George W. Bush address to Congress, September 20th, 2001.
“Bush…was so fucking bad. Him, Karl Rove, Cheney, Rumsfeld. Do you really not remember unitary executive? The NSA spying? The denial of habeas corpus? The complete fabrication of evidence for the Iraq war?? The PATRIOT act??? We are still living with these for f*cks sake.
Just because Bush says this one thing you agree with doesn’t make him a f*cking saint. The guy singlehandedly destroyed the constitution. We still have people rotting in Gitmo in a legal no-man’s-land because of him.”
